Aker Solutions has been selected to supply further subsea umbilicals for leading US independent oil and gas company Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL). The deal is worth approximately US $46 million (NOK 270 million).
This latest order is an exercise of options agreed under the initial US $111 million (NOK 650 million) umbilical contract which was announced in April of this year. The subsea umbilicals will be used at Noble Energy's Tamar deepwater project offshore Israel in the Mediterranean Sea.
The latest order is for approximately 105 kilometers of steel tube umbilicals, bringing the total order from Noble Energy up to 330 kilometers of subsea umbilicals.
Engineering and project management will be provided from Aker Solutions' facility in Mobile, Alabama, where the umbilicals will be manufactured too. Estimated delivery date is Q3 2011.
In June, Noble awarded Aker Solutions the contract for the subsea control equipment on the Tamar field, and in April, Aker Solutions won the award to deliver the complete mono ethylene glycol reclamation unit to the project.
